Honest assessment of your training regimen right now
Figured a lot of people post their regimen when it's good, but what's yours like right now?
Mine- work 8-14 hours a day construction, which is as close to strength training as I've been able to do during that time.
Taking two college courses, so there's more time gone.
Basically, I train moves between working, have no time for any real cardio, but have a grip strength like death from using various hammers all day(doing some frame work and wood floor install). My leg strength is also pretty good from using an edger(sander from hell), but I'm almost a moment from back pain at all times. I stretch every morning, do short stretches throughout the day, and use jow every evening to keep my back from spasming.
Every other day(sometimes third day), I make the twenty minutes to do a simple regimen which consists of 200 crunches, 100 waist twists, 50 side crunches, 50 push ups, 100 toe raises, 30 squats(this area doesn't need much work, and I have concerns about taking it easy on my knees due to the type of work I do) and some neck exercises.
That's my regimen. Pretty crappy, but sometimes that happens. Curious to see how others make use of time shortages.

I try to make it to practice 4 times a week but often only make it twice a week :(
On weekends I mountainbike or play frisbee just something aerobic usually.

In the midst of a pretty intense semester of my first year in a PhD program.
Manage to make 2-3 (usually 3) 2hr bjj classes. That is about the total of my specifically ma training. Get in about 2-3 (usually 2) strength training workouts a week and run 2 miles about twice a week.
Don't have as good as an excuse as you, push a desk ~9-10 hours a day reading, writing programming or running stats. This is making an astigmatism worse, stiffens my back on which I had surgery a few years ago and pisses me off because there isn't a window in my office.

Your excuse is as good as mine, you just don't have a job that doubles as a workout, is a crappy one. It's funny that polar opposite jobs both lead to back pain.

This week was Spring Break, and by virtue of not hving anything else to do with my time I was expecting a highly productive week. Which naturally meant that I'd work every goddamned day and make it to exactly one (1) Muay Thai class, one (1) class of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and one (1) weightlifting session which, I am chagrined to say, lasted LESS THAN HALF AN HOUR. Meanwhile, due to a dire lack of food in my house (I counted somewhere in the ballpark of, oh, two cans of French Onion soup and some potatoes) I've been spending the vast sums of money I had stashed entirely on eating out, mostly Quizno's and their sinfully savory Spicy Montery Club (less mayonaise, thanks).Captain's Log: Just a little update for all my TRUE and HONEST friends out there:
1) I am STRAIGHT! I am STRAIGHT! Get it through your thick skulls, numbskulls!
2) My name is not Ian Brandon Something.
3) Kacey is coming with me now. I have stolen her from the other Christian Weston Chandler.

I do a desk job for 11 to 12 hours a day, go to the gym for an hour 4 days a week (strength and cardio) and occasionally remember to go to tai chi and escrima classes. I take a full week off excercise whenever I injure myself just to make sure.
My body fat is currently at about 20% so still a long way to go.Taking responsibility for my actions since 1989

My training regimen is in dire need of help, but getting a useful helping hand soon, I hope.What am I?:
I am ignorant, thieving, lying, hypocrital, violent and thoroughly self obssessed. I steal from others to make myself look better, only to make the item or information worse.
I go on and on and ON about how brave and strong and brilliant and wealthy I am, but in the end I'm all mouth and no trousers.
That's right children, I'm your average AMERICUNT! and I exemplify AMERICA!:911flag:

Yes, through persistent lack of work and the cultivation of ignorance, he is a true American.

Heres my schedule:
I train my main class (1 hour classes) 4 days of the week. before each class there is this special class that every 6 months changes into something new to learn. I just joined this recently and so far they have gone into a huge JJJ thing, the first semester was standup JJJ (just something to do I guess) and now is ground JJJ which is kinda fun. Those are 4 days a week, half an hour each. I make sure I attend all of those. On mondays, I do a demonstration team thing which is 45 minutes of usually straight cardio (its flashy, I know. I joined to help out because it was under handed and stayd because its loads of fun).
Then on weekends, I work about 14 hours doing manual labor stuff (makes up for weight lifting).
I hope to add more actually. I want to start cross training but I haven't found anywhere to do this yet. I also do MMAesque sparring with a buddy of mine once every week-2 weeks but its so far inbetween its not as good as I would like, and neither of us have very structured MMA experiance.
